Default How do you guys cut your hose?

Heh, I've been water cooling for years and I've about had it with broken or dull scissors. I'[d love to get my hands on some hose cutters but other than dangerden I don't see anyone selling them.

So how do you guys cut your hose?

Problem with scissors are they leave burrs and the tube isn't always straight.

Scissors works perfectly fine.. Just cut it in one go, tubing isn't very level if I do it more than 2 cuts..
